Scallop and shrimp pasta is what I make for my family whenever I wanted to wow them for dinner, even during busy weeknights.
The reason is very simple; work and school are both stressful and one of the weeknights, it’s always great to have a special dinner for the family.
When you combine both scallop and shrimp together in a pasta, you are pretty much making Italian restaurants quality pasta at home for the family.
It’s really an indulgence, so pop open a bottle of wine while you are at it and have a great family dinner with your loved ones.
It really doesn’t break the bank and takes only 20 minutes to make!
